Thanks to the incomparable Kristy Lee of ScrapbookSteals.com for this week's/month's sketch. Kinda cool when you can do one layout for two different challenges!
This is for Amethyst #8 and for Authentique's April challenge, I used "Genuine" and really hated the idea of cutting all of those hexagons, BUT, once I got going - I found myself thinking - what else can I use hexagons on??? The photo needed a bit of color to help it pop off the page which is why I chose the red matte. Some of my scrappy friends will recognize the twine and ribbons from Easter. We were all talking about using the left-over egg dye for ribbons and twine. The twine I used was just a natural jute twine and took to the dye very well. The lace ribbon is from StampinUp! and I cannot wait to use the other colors I created!
Have a scrappy/stampin kinda day!
